Pastor Maldonado has admitted that he is still in pain from his crash that brought out the red flags in the Monaco Grand Prix.
The race was stopped on lap 46 on Sunday when Maldonado suffered a 9g impact with the barriers at Tabac after colliding with Max Chilton's Marussia.
The crash damaged the barriers, but Maldonado was able to walk away with only bruising and a small cut on his arm.
Speaking on this week's episode of The Racer's Edge, Maldonado revealed that he is still feeling the effects of the crash, but he is not concerned about any long-lasting damage.
"My body still hurts but it's not a problem," said the Williams driver. "As soon as I knew I was OK I was thinking already of Montreal."
Chilton received a drive-through penalty for his part in the incident, and the Briton offered an apology afterwards.
"He said I was coming across on him," said Chilton. "I said if I did, I'm sorry. It wasn't intentional."
Maldonado's chassis was too badly damaged in the crash to be repaired in time to be shipped out for next weekend's Canadian Grand Prix, so he will run a new chassis there.
